    Excellent. Simply excellent.

    I love the fact you displayed how to change the cut-differential for light when using shadow, I didn’t know how to achieve that effect before. I think I’m beginning to understand what I was doing wrong with the Kasugawa-schoolswimsuit photo shoot when I took my first shots inside.

    I’m glad to see the vimeo bug is catching, Super Rats. I’m confidently speaking for myself and other figure-snappers when I say: Moar tutorials!! XD

    That’s a very interesting technique to use. I’d have to try it one day but I don’t think I have a figure that would suit that kind of mood. But damn, you sure have a lot of space to work with to do your photography work on, mine is probably half of that.

    @Len-Vesper agrees. Showing how you manipulate the light beam was highly interested. I did not notice your pair of tutorials until now. Their both very interested and I will both take on the advice.
    Great to see the ‘cheap’ techniques. Guess buying expensive camera’s isn’t all it takes :P .
    @Adun, I just get down to the floor.

    nice video tutorial :D

    definitely going to try that, since it’s true that some figures (especially the glossy ones..) need plenty of shadows to make them good, heh..

    Nice little video tutorial. :)

    It’s good to see a video tutorial on how you get your lighting to work for you as often times it will take me a bit to get how it all works if it was written down.

    I have seen this technique being use for external flash, have nvr thought of using it for figure shoot, but it really does give some nice effect.
